Sometimes people won’t admit they need help to stay at home, and others may be unaware that it is time for some extra help to maintain a healthy and safe home environment. Knowing and watching for signs that could indicate extra assistance is needed may fall on family, friends or advisers.
- When spending time with aging relatives, take note of the following: Has the elderly person changed eating habits?
- Has the elderly person lost weight?
- Is the elderly person taking care of his/her personal hygiene and dress?
- Is the home being maintained in good order?
